Seven Point Mind Training 2013
Seven-Point Mind Training: The Everyday Journey of Heart and Mind
with Jampa Jaffe
2 separate classes: Monday and repeated on Tuesday
Without its teachings on selflessness Buddhism could not go beyond psychotherapy. For whilst therapy and much of Buddhism prune the branches of our misconceptions about what it means to be a "normal," "sane," or "worthwhile" person, the view of selflessness and its practice aim at cutting the roots, namely our deep, unexamined, mistaken beliefs about what it means to be a person at all.
It is through the power of the Awakened Mind realizing the true nature of our self and all other phenomena, that ignorance is completely destroyed, all afflictive emotions such as hatred and attachment are forever stilled, and we experience unremitting inner peace.
In this series of teachings in 2013 Jampa will be explaining the view and practices for developing the wisdom realizing selflessness--the Awakened Mind.
